Adam Caplan just reported on Twitter that the Titans have made significant progress in their contract talks, and that a deal could be done as early as today. That is really good news, obviously, but as Yogi Berra once said, "It ain't over until it's over."
I have made my feelings about a contract holdout perfectly clear before, so I don't need to do that again with this post. Hopefully that all ends today and Wright will be on the field this afternoon.
At this point the work that he has missed is not something that cannot be made up quickly. There have been some really good reports so far in camp about guys like Damian Williams and Marc Mariani, so Wright might have a little bit of an uphill battle in the early going, but if he was worth the 20th pick in the draft, it should not take him very long to pass those guys on the depth chart.
